Fourth of July – Orinda Style


    Orindans decorated porches, fences, staircases, mailboxes, themselves and their pets July 4 in celebration of Independence Day.
    Old Glory was everywhere. Decorated cars were espied along Orinda Way, horns honking, everyone waving.
    Andy Radlow, “The Parade Guy,” rode his festive bicycle along what is typically the entire parade route.
    “Turns out I was a little sentimental and decided to make it a parade of one,” he said. “Does this count to keeping the parade alive even during COVID-19, 2020?”
    The Orinda Association’s Fourth of July co-chairs, Diane Lautz and Bill Waterman, acknowledged those who sent entries to a photo gallery, which may be viewed at
    Best of the best photos were submitted by Mary Anne Anderson, Steve Anderson, John and JoAnn Cahill, Friends of Wagner Ranch Nature Area from Mallika Dandamudi, Elle Hoffnagel, Joel Jackson, Rebecca Bauer-Kahan family from Shawn Kumagai, Patricia Keene, Bobbie Landers and the Landers family, Carol Morehouse, Barbara Nestal, Lisa Violet, Marie Waterman and Jim Wiltshire.
    “Stay tuned for 2021,” said Lautz. “Plans are already underway to make it the Best Hometown Parade ever. And, we’ll be celebrating the 70th anniversary of The Orinda Association. Mark your calendars.”
